all traffic by Sedgemoor District Council following damage caused
by high tides.
pictured here, the concrete road surface is crumbling away, and
with sand washed away from around it, there is a sharp drop onto
the beach that could potentially damage vehicles.
spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are looking
at a more permanent solution, which involves specialist engineers
going out to have a look."
additional problem is the transatlantic cables which run directly
under the road which are a factor in the equation. So, we are looking
at solutions, but, as always, any solution will be cost-dependant."
beach remains open for cars to park on the beach, but caution is
necessary as tides are high."
